NOTE: Another early start for today's event

Your Day 11 Event is: Ladies Freestyle Skiing Ski Cross
Your Day 11 pick is due by: Feb. 23, 10:30 AM PST, 1:30 PM US Eastern

About the event: The Ski Cross is similar with Snowboard Cross, another sport that has become increasingly popular. As the name suggests, Freestyle does not have a formal structure; it has one objective-the cross of the end line. The tasks are challenging and they test the athletes' strength and turning ability on a short period. Four competitors enter a race and the first four are qualified for the next round. There will be a big final to rank the first four and a small final for the following four places.

Among the Competitors:

Meryll Boulangeat FRA
Ophelie David FRA
Martehie Gjefsen NOR
Katherina Gutensohn AUT
Anna Holmlund SWE
Ashleigh Mcivor CAN
Julia Murray CAN
Kelsey Serwa CAN
Fanny Smith SWI

I was always a fan of The Band, so I have to take an athlete whose name has been having me singing "Ophelia" all day long.

This is it's debut in the Games, but before this I'd never heard of them either.

But I'm also going with Anna Holmlund.

Holmlund.

I watched the men's version of the sport the other day. It is no where near as good as snowboard cross since it is so much easier to fall in snowboarding. Pretty much for whoever gets out to a lead at the start of the skiing ends up winning the race.

Ditto. I just hope the first 3 people to pick Ophelie knew what they were doing:)

I think it's based mainly on this comment
David, who has won six consecutive World Cups and leads the points race this season, said she was delighted when she found out her sport would make its Olympic debut in Vancouver.

I didn't add a :) to my post so as not to jinx McIveor (and I picked David, so it wouldn't have been bragging.) For the second straight day, I'm glad to be wrong (but am screwed in this contest now.)

In our (the David pickers) defense ... just saw an interview with McIveor who apparently didn't know David didn't make the final until she looked in the starting gates and didn't see her there and was surprised.
